Rob Kardashian's ex took to Instagram after being slammed online for endorsing a "skin lightening" cream, for which she's attending the launch party in Nigeria later this month.

Blac Chyna came under fire this week for promoting a skin lightening cream to her followers in Nigeria.

The 30-year-old social media star is the new face of a brand called Whitenicious, specifically their 'Diamond Illuminating & Lightening cream', and taking the controversial product to Lagos this weekend.

Representatives for Rob Kardashian's ex-girlfriend say her aim with the cream - which sells for $250 per jar - is to help men and women of colour who suffer with "skin issues" like hyper-pigmentation.

The promotion was met with a huge amount of criticism online, with many slamming Chyna for encouraging people to lighten the colour of their skin. In response to the backlash, Chyna fired back on Instagram.

She posted - and then posted again - a meme of her face photoshopped on rapper Kodak Black's body, hailing herself as "The Finesse Kid", another name Kodak goes by.

Chyna is scheduled to appear at the launch of her cream with Whitenicious at their Lagos store on Sunday (25th Nov). She has disabled the comments underneath the initial announcement image on Instagram.

Meanwhile, the mother-of-two is busy throwing shade at Rob Kardashian and another of her famous ex's, Tyga, following her child support feud with Rob over their daughter Dream.

As well as two-year-old Dream, she also has another child - six-year-old son, King Cairo, with Tyga.
